Ironically given the name of the site it's not available here. But yes, Billy is a hero. I believe Arbuthnot is a big fan too. Though not a Bragg original this song has always been one of my favourites in his repertoire - gets me wanting to man the fucking barricades every time.

They make the laws
To chain us well
The clergy dazzle us with heaven
Or they damn us into hell
We will not worship
The God they serve
The God of greed who feeds the rich
While poor folk starve

"Had an uncle who once played,
for Red Star Belgrade".

It don't get much better than that !

(without taking anything away from the more serious lyrics that you have provided).

Almost inevitably, your reference put me in mind of the legendary Half Man Half Biscuit's 'All I Want For Christmas is a Dukla Prague Away Kit'.

And he'd managed to get hold of
A Dukla Prague Away Kit,
His uncle owned a sports shop and he'd kept it to one side.

Great stuff!

So that's where Lyle Lovett got the idea for the hair-style.
